Two Colorado Springs neighborhoods wake up to dozens of tires slashed, and now neighbors want to know who is responsible.

It happened overnight between Saturday and Sunday in the 2100 block of West Kiowa and the 2400 block of Virgo Street. The two locations are about two miles apart. Dozens of cars were targeted.

Neighbors we spoke with say the crimes are frustrating and costly.

Lance Green had two of his tires slashed and says, "it's 500 bucks a pop for people with good tires and it's hard times, it's really hard times and people don't just have 500 bucks in the coffee can for 2 new tires on Sunday morning".

Down the street, Adam Stickler had the tires slashed on both his work van and his personal car, "people really don't have a whole lot of money to spend on two extra tires just because somebody decided to go ahead and have some fun".

If you know anything about these crimes, you're asked to call Crime Stoppers to make an anonymous tip at (719) 634-STOP.
